In the flux of new digital solutions and technologies for both patients and employees alike, the data that flows across these platforms and solutions can easily be lost in transition.
And while the word data in it itself is a bit nebulous, in actual practice, data is where the future of work is headed in the value it provides to an organization’s workflow and customer experience.
In this, it’s not just a piece of a particular program or system, but rather deserving of its own department. Organizations that make business and hiring decisions around developing their own data departments will be better prepared in the long run.
Healthcare, in particular, can benefit from developing hiring around this practice to help mitigate risk around data management with returning to hospitals as well as better managing new opportunities for future digitalization.
